Mitchell sustained the injury three weeks ago after an awkward fall against the Indiana Pacers. He was diagnosed with a severe right ankle sprain.

The All-Star guard was posting career highs of 26.4 points, 5.2 assists, and 4.4 rebounds for the Jazz, shooting 43.8 percent from the floor and 38.6 percent from the three-point line.

Despite Mitchell missing 11 games, the Jazz has still been able to maintain their spot at the top of the Western Conference. They are currently in a neck-and-neck battle with the Phoenix Suns for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, leading by one game.

Based on the team’s timeline for evaluations, Donovan Mitchell’s possible last chances for regular-season action could be against Oklahoma City on May 14 and the Sacramento Kings on May 16.
